Quechua, Tribord, and all the others are not just brands, they are our passion sports. Why do we talk about passion sport ? Quite simply because our teams are women and men passionate about sport and their jobs. Sportspeople who are committed to designing the best sports products for other sportspeople !

If we have so many passion sports, it is to better equip sportspeople by offering them precise and technical products that are always well suited to their activity.
For example, a diving wetsuit is not quite like a surf wetsuit. Concerning the diving suit, the fastening is in the front because of the oxygen bottle which is behind, on the surf suit, the zip is behind so it remains comfortable when on the board.
Let's take the evolution of water sports as an example. Creation of Tribord dedicated to water sports in 1996. In 2008, Tribord separates from its swimming activity, creation of Nabaiji. In 2016, it's divided into 4 sports: Itiwit (paddle sports, stand up paddle boarding and kayaking), Subea (diving), Tribord (sailing) and Olaian (surfing, bodyboarding and skimboarding). In 2020, Olaian is divided into 2 sports: Radbug (bodyboard) and Oliaian (surf, wakeboard); and Tribord is divided into 2 sports: Tribord (sailing) and Tamahoo (windsurf).
MOST OF OUR PASSION SPORTS ARE IN FRANCE.
With a few exceptions! Yes, we are adapting to sports around the world. Badminton is in China because the racquet sport is much more practiced there than in France.
